The Deadly Snakes were a garage rock band formed in Parkdale-High Park in Toronto. Their debut album was produced by Greg Oblivian and released on Sympathy for the Record Industry in 1999. Three albums on In the Red followed, giving the band modest fame and the ability to tour internationally. Their last show was on August 18th, 2006 at the Horseshoe Tavern, in Toronto. By the end of the show, they had run out of songs to play, and ended with Louie Louie.
